The 24-year-old alt-R&B enigma Abel Tesfaye, voice of the Weeknd, returns for his biggest NYC show yet. Not all of Tesfaye's recorded music lives up to the deafening buzz he elicted upon his 2011 online emergence, but at its best (e.g., the Drake collaboration "Crew Love," a cover of MJ's "Dirty Diana," "Elastic Heart" with Sia and Diplo, and a handful of tracks from 2013's immersive Kiss Land), the Weeknd's output is both dizzyingly sensual and deeply unsettling.
